DIY Intake Question

I've got all the stuff I need to do the Tymar mod. Looked under the hood at lunch and noticed that the air intake box seems to be part of the battery box cover. I have a 6" lift and was on my tip toes. Did I see this wrong? The help pics on here show an exposed battery after the installation. Is there anything I should know before I tear into this project? Thanks.

the air box is actually a seperate piece, there are tabs that connect it to the battery cover. Take out the screws in the bottom of the air box and push in the tabs and it will come out.

Thanks

(Not sure what is going on with my thread. Your PM was just your profile. I finally pushed a few buttons and got it so I can view your replies.)

Thanks for the info. I live a good haul from the nearest anything, and didn't want to have to figure out a way to get back to town after I started tearing down the box. I haven't looked at it real close yet. Got the filter, clamps, pipe and ladder. May try the zoodad this weekend too.

Thanks again.

the zoodad is real easy. So is the tymar. Once they are done you will notice the difference. And since you are doing the tymar intake, have you thought about doing the Crank Case Vent (CCV) mod? It pretty simple too. Here is a link to some DIY mods. Powerstroke Mods and Maintenance Let us know if you need any help.

Yeah, just remove the airbox itself... the lid, and lower box.... ... leave the rest in there... the filter DOES fit...

And, if you have ANY sort of dexterity, and patience.. work the hose, it WILL be forced over the mouth of the filter, took me about 3 or 4 minutes...
